Must not laugh at cultural appropriation by blacks
As an African American, Maxine Waters would have naturally "nappy" hair. So seeing her with a lush "white" hairdo must have been a sight. But you are NOT allowed to mention that. Cultural appropriation is fine if minorities do it
Fox News host Bill O'Reilly said Tuesday he "didn't hear a word" Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said during recent comments on the House floor because he was focused on "the James Brown wig."
African-Americans "fight against this president, and we point out how dangerous he is for this society and for this country, we're fighting for the democracy," Waters declared.
O'Reilly appeared to be amused in a split-screen image of Waters, saying afterward he didn't hear a word of the Waters clip because he was distracted by "the James Brown wig." "I didn't hear a word [Waters] said. I was looking at the James Brown wig. If we have a picture of James, it's the same wig."
O'Reilly later apologized for his comments, calling the remark about the James Brown wig "dumb."
"As I have said many times, I respect Congresswoman Maxine Waters for being sincere in her beliefs. I said that again today on Fox & Friends calling her 'old school," said O'Reilly in a statement.
"Unfortunately, I also made a jest about her hair which was dumb. I apologize."
